Weddings Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast
Couples have a lot to do while planning a wedding. Often though, when carefully scheming for the big parts, smaller & less fancy details are overlooked or slip out of their mind. This includes a contingency plan for weather, factoring extra time with vendors, wedding transportation, etc. Given our frequent experience with couples as a wedding shuttle service provider, listed below are the top 5 things that they forget the most.
#1 Contingency Plan For Weather
Plan for weather changes like rain, winds, severe cold fronts, etc. In most cases, you don’t have to pay extra as many venues come equipped with indoor banquets. However, make sure you talk to them about the backup situation so they don’t book the indoor halls for some other event. Realistically, you should draw a contingency plan with your vendors and make arrangements accordingly.
#2 Wedding Transportation
You’ll need different wedding transportation ideas for different days & events. You’d need transportation for bachelorette/ bachelor parties, for the guests, for the bride/ groom to take them to the venue, for the post-reception exit, etc. For all your wedding transportation needs, we have a fleet fitting your preferences like luxury Mercedes-Benz shuttle services, limos, and comfortable buses, from 7 seaters to 60 seaters. Just send us a general inquiry form of all your needs and we’d be more than happy to guide you with the further process. We'd recommend starting planning your wedding transportation at least 2 to 3 months in advance.
#3 Factoring The Costs Of Extra Hours With Vendors
Besides wedding transportation, you will need to factor in overtime for some key vendors like bartenders, wedding photographers, and DJs. You won’t know how long the events will last. Talk to the vendors beforehand about how much time they will charge extra for the hours, what those rates will be like, and if they aren’t available for the extra timing, will you have a replacement available?
#4 Preparing A Not-To-Play List For Your DJ
Though you’ve prepped a list of must-have songs for your reception party, there are also a few wedding songs to put off the list. For example, Suspicious Minds by Elvis Presley that's based on a dysfunctional relationship, or Fake Love by Drake - though toe-tapping, it's inappropriate to play a song talking about fake love when you just got married.
#5 Delays - Because They’re Inevitable
Wedding timelines almost always shift a bit forward. It’s normal and nothing to stress over. Your vendors are prepared for it, and can also guide you on how to navigate the situation. Our advice is to be mentally ready for these slight pre-/ postponements. We will be right on time though, don’t worry!
There are a million and one things to handle when you plan a wedding. It’s no surprise that you forget to consider a few of them. So, don’t be too hard on yourself. In the end, all that matters is you get to enjoy your wedding day to the fullest.
As for us, we’re here to handle one of those crucial elements – wedding transportation, so you have one less thing to worry about. You can call us to discuss various wedding shuttle services, or drop in your message on the General Enquiry and we will get back to you at the latest.
